Genre: A Gothic Kid’s Musical
Adapted from the original novel by Philip Pullman

Status: In Development

Count Karlstein is a fantastical musical comedy based on Philip Pullman’s first novel. Originally written as a play for school-children, it’s vibrancy and humour make it ideal for adaptation.


Set in a beautiful Alpine Neverland  on the All Souls Eve, the darkest night of the year this glorious gothic romp follow the adventure of a young girl called Hildi who sets out to rescue two little girls, Lucy and Charlotte, from the clutches of Zamiel, the Demon Hunstman. Though terrified of falling into his clutches, and beset by the  bumblings of various bumbling townsfolk, she sets out into the night. Enlisting the help of her outlawed sharp-shooting brother, the girls’ daring Headmistress and a travelling conman, what ensues is a hysterical, rip-roaring tale of courage, bravery and never giving up!
